Proposed Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2008: $10,557
Explanation or Additional Information: Reschedule is requested to provide time needed for completion of single source A133 Audit and final repair efforts for project completion. BPA's percentage of federal funds expended on this project equalled 60.2%. The budget line for the audit task will not exceed 60.2% of the costs of the audit. Remaining funds will be utilized for final project reporting and incidental costs.

Section 3: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Activity Description Original Start Date Original End Date New Start Date New End Date Condition/Situation Creating the Need to Reschedule Cost What Will Enable the Work to be Achieved Now?
Completion of single source federal audit is required for this project due to increased costs. Final reporting should be delayed until implementation of adaptive repair work is complete.  9/26/2006  9/30/2008  9/26/2006  1/30/2009  Increased federal expenditure triggered unscheduled single source audit. Delays in adaptive management survey require additional time for implementation of repairs.  $10,557  Audit process has been initiated as a new task. CBC is reviewing audit quotes and will select CPA and inititae process by 09/03/08 

Please explain why the following alternative funding solutions are not feasible and would jeopardize the project:
Reducing existing scope of project
(i.e., eliminating some activities planned for FY 2008 to accommodate the FY 2007 activities)
The federal single source audit is a requirement due to increased project costs that resulted in federal expenditure of greater than $500,000 in FY 2007
Shifting entire schedule
(i.e., deferring some FY 2008 activities to FY 2009 to avoid doubling up on activities this year)
Timing of the federal audit requires prompt completion and submittal to the Federal Clearinghouse.
